Hey there, i have just started to use your generators and i absolutely love them! I was wondering (as someone with no expertise in those areas whatsoever) if you are thinking about merging your City and Neighbourhood Generators at some point, or maybe give the opportunity to import generated cities in here to be converted? I am certain that this would be a quite a challenge and i understand the intention of having seperate tools for seperate reasons, but i would love to hear about your opinion on that.
Additionally i wanted to ask about the possiblility to manually create a part of an area, outline places to be filled by the generator and letting it on from there? As i often have a specific area in mind i would love a way to fill in the suroundings (e.g. a square marketplace with two small roads coming off in the north and the main road leading through the center from west to east)
Really looking forward to what you will come up next!
Sorry, just noticed your comment.
I don't think the city and neighbourhood generators will be merged (not anytime soon anyway) but while working on both of them I try to transplant ideas and solutions which seem good from one to another. I am going to remake districts in the city generator and it will probably become possible to "open" them in the neighbourhood generator (similar to opening towns and dungeons from Perilous Shores).
In the next update of this generator I am planning to make it possible to specify the neighbourhood outline by manually drawing it. That's not exactly what you are asking about, but somewhat close.
As much as I love your other tools and use them regularly, I find this one PARTICULARLY charming and wonderful. It gives a texture and granularity to our spontaneous/dynamic world-sketching that makes responding to unexpected in-game player choices so much more satisfying and "believable". "What's on the other side of that gate?" ... a neighborhood! DEEELIGHTFUL!! Thank you for creating and sharing this with us!!
(sorry for my english).
First of all I want to say thanks for your fantastic work.
I've discovered your work when years ago I started playing Pixel Dungeon; I spent so many hours playing it and when I finally ended it was fantastic. I started playing when the King of Dwarfs was the last boss and continued playing for years.
Said that... emh... the missing of Canals and rivers are pretty important :D
Also the size of the map is a big pieces that I miss;
and the last thing is the size of the "block", there is a lot of "inner space"/garden/internal courtyard that aren't in the architectural style of Doskvol.
thanks anyway for your code, is wonderful, and again, thanks for the fantastic time you entertained me with your game.
Recursive bisection, with curved streets. A simple yet brilliant idea that produces excellent results that look very organic. I really like some of the chaotic sprawl shapes you get with the more dense "X" areas, the unrestrained and unanticipated growth of inner cities.
Nice! I do the same thing but using PSP instead of GIMP. Really like those fields. A tip for your water is to just color the area blue and then overlay a semi-transparent png on top of it with water/wave textures. Something like this just as an example (hard to tell, but that is semi-transparent and will pick up your color underneath it. But there are larger, better quality ones out there (that was a lazy google search result. haha).
As others have said, would be great to see this work with MCG. Even if not, I'd hate to see this never get developed further.
Where it could really fit well is with the Village Generator. I think it would mesh very well if you can add these styles and level of street detail to the VG (and the density would fit well for a "large" village).
Always amazing and inspiring! I never even knew I needed this generator and now I've seen it, it's obvious that I do! As others have said, it would be amazing if integrated with MFCG if that's your plan? But even stand alone it's so useful. I am absolutely positive you already have heaps of ideas/plans for where to go next with this but if you need more please ask... :-) Regardless of what you do next with this I know it will be incredible!
